    Is that Derek Smalls rocking the Vox-pop mic at around 1:10?

    No farmcore is complete without farmer blowing.  (at 3:30)

    Ahh the good ole days! I remember the farm well. The punk scene was a lot of fun back then. Some great clubs at that time in the Bay Area. On Broadway, The Mab, The Stone, The Omni. Gilman St.

    I lived there for a couple of months. Outside my window, SRL flamethrowers woke me up in the middle of the night.

    Lost me a couple of minutes in at the cheap shot of “Meanwhile in Middle America.” Hipster snobbery at flyover country (where quite a few of them, if not most of them, were from originally) has always been old and lame. I’d like to see a doco on punk in the 80s set entirely between the Rockies and the Appalachians, the kind of scene where the participants really had to participate and not just drop in on it like trust fund leeches.
